SHARE House returns on Sunday night: fiscal cliffhanger

WASHINGTON–House members were told Thursday to return to Washington Sunday night–with only hours remaining to avoid the Dec. 31 fiscal cliff deadline.

House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), via Twitter said “The House will return for legislative business on Sunday, December 30. First votes are expected at 6:30 p.m.”

GOP House members learned about the last minute effort to avoid the fiscal cliff during a 2:30 p.m. conference call.
